Probably not. It's not now either given that if you're black you can freely say it. It's a double standard that it's only "bad" for certain people to say, which is pure hypocrisy.

Yes. And he was a racist for his time. He kept it on the DL. When his ex-wife told a longtime correspondent, Samuel Loveman, about how racist he was, Samuel burned all of his letters in outrage.

Lets assume that birds are dinosaurs in the same way primates are mammals, not just descendants of mammals. Chickens then will be dinosaurs.
22 billion chicken alive right now. Was any other species or genre of dinosaur so abundant? Furthermore, if we count all individual dinosaurs at any single point in time, could this be the time with the most amount of dinosaurs. In other words, are there more individual birds alive today than dinosaurs and birds at any year in the mesozoic era? Even if using a high estimate for the number of dinosaurs in the mesozoic era ( and th estimates will vary wildly), there really seems to be a lack of small species of non avian dinosaurs, even considering how hard it is for them to fossilize. Dont really know the numbers though, im asking /an/
Tl, dr: Chicken might be most abundsnt dinosaur, we might have more dinosaurs today than in the dinosaur age. Tell me if im wrong

Chickens run like velocorapters plus scientists were able to unlock Gene's that would make them more prehistoric plus since I own chickens believe you me when I say they are vicious. I feel sorry for every creature its size of below which comes into contact with it

Im choosing to define successful as abundant. But yes, a chicken life is shit.

By this definition, the most successful vertebrate is the spiny bristlemouth.

Worldwide population is in the quadrillions.
>>
>>3168789
Yes, it would be. Should have probably just said abundant though. Chicken then is the most abundant dinosaur, dinosaurs might be more abundant today than in the so called dinosaur age

I work in a prefab building shop. Cut resistant gloves. mouse came in later and collapsed. leg broken. Doubt it was my doing, lot of moving shit here. put water and goldfish next to him and covered with paper towel, and went back to work. came back, he was dead. Least I gave him a fighting chance. Rip. Tons of mice like him though.

One of the employees had kicked it before I caught it, probably what broke the leg.

Gave it a proper burial later

Just found about these "kill cones". Jesus Christ, that looks gruesome as fuck. My grandparents just used a small axe to chop off the chicken head. This is like from a horror movie.

third worlder here
this is supposed to be an obscure thing?
I always assumed putting them in a giant funnel and slicing their neck and let them bleed was common practice, at least on every farm I was including the one I grew up in it was like that
>>
>>3168692

Not just Islam (or Chinese) to be fair. Western industrial butchering doesn't give a fuck beyond somewhat immobilizing the animal before cutting their throats and hanging them up to bleed.
>>
>>3168752

Nah, most first worlders just have no clue how their meat is actually made. Many imagine some sort of lovey-dovey petting them to death scenario, or that the animals experience no fear/stress/death struggle. That they live horrible lives and are abused all the way to the meat grinder somehow doesn't enter their minds.
>>
>>3168764
Forth worlder (slav) here. Have never seen a (live) chicken, but I thought you spin it until it loses conscientiousness and then use axe and some sort of table to remove head. Then remove feathers (there are machines that look like washing machines with spokes).
This is how they do it in villages.
Though I have no idea what is industry standard method to kill.

That's because they're shipped across the world in boxes with very little oxygen and complete darkness. It's easier to keep a wild caught frog from your backyard than a wild caught frog from Ecuador.

hello /herp/
are pacman frogs relatively easy to keep? How often do I need to feed them? Can I be away 3 days or would they die?
>>
>>3168657
They're literally just a sack of organs that sits there and eats. You'll see it everyday, but in the same place never doing anything. You can feed them once a week and they'll be fine.
Do yourself a favor and get fire belly toads or clawed frogs or something. The extra work will be worth it because they actually move around instead of sitting in the same hole their whole lives.

>>3168485
>is it safe to refreeze them
No. Toss those and buy new.
>>
>>3168653
kinda this, assuming it's a species that won't just refuse to eat
I'm really hoping that the dekay's babies in https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=paTshIiRZ5w do well, love that species but wild caught adults usually just refuse to eat and starve.
